"Nostalgia" is putting a negative spin on it. How about, "tradition" or "flavour" or "continuity."
I think it's a terrible idea to take a name that is unique and replace it with something bland and generic.
Would you rename Oxford to "College in Big Town in Northeast England" just because there are no longer any oxen fording there?
